Ok boys, britfag here about to get his first car, I would like it to be an RWD to do sick skids. The price of the car is not that big of a deal but the insurance is utterly stupid, Suzuki cappuccinos are 5k...
TLDR: any cars that are RWD and cheap to insure or tips for cheap insurance.

Corsa with maccas trays under the rear wheels. Otherwise you are looking 70s, 80s

It costs so much for you to insure because you're inevitably going to wreck it.

ITT niggas who don't know shit about insuring cars in bongland

Wait and get an Mx5 OP, it's the cheapest to insure RWD which is actually worth its salt (don't get a twingo lmao)

>>21212041
Older, cheaper cars are not necessarily cheaper to insure, usually the complete opposite

I got my license at 18, waited til 19 and paid 1.5k for a year on insurance, I'm 22 now and I paid £800 this year with 3 years ncb

I should add I got a 2000 1.8 Mx5

Congratulations faggot you've paid enough in insurance to buy another two MX5s already.

Welcome to insuring cars in the UK

Also I paid 2k for a perfect example of one with only 40k on the clock.

What about murica here? No miata pls

>>21212022
>Brit
Had you been a burger, I’d suggest an MR2 or Miata. Both, a while back, ran me (24 year old male at the time ) less than 100 to insure with full coverage

Which is absolutely disgraceful but only third party personal surely? Which wouldn't cost that much.
>>
>>21212233
See >>21212234
>>
>>21212234
Third party fire and theft only knocks about %20 off and doesn't include any of the useful shit that fully comp tends to (e.g windscreen protection, getting hit by uninsured drivers)
>>
>>21212253
Third party personal means if you run someone over the insurance company will pay their medical bills for the rest of their life.
Surely this is the only type of insurance that's mandatory in the UK, surely you're not that corporate cucked yet.
>>
Mercedes 190E, mine is for sale
>>
>>21212292
Answer this man please. Or are you all just paying through the ass because 'might as well get comp in case i get a chip in my windscreen'
>>
>>21212384
No, the price difference is literally so small that you might as well get *something* for the shitload that you're forced to pay

We have 3 categories of insurance:
Fully comprehensive, Third party fire and theft and third party only, the latter of which is the most expensive for some reason
>>
>>21212384
For a new driver the difference isn't even as high as 20%. For someone with a reasonably valuable car the extra 20% may even be worth it - making 3rd party mandatory changes the mathematics of the transaction - it may well be worth it to you to pay the £100 (extra) per year for full coverage.
>>
>>21212400
>>21212401
It's disgraceful that they make ANY form of private insurance mandatory, but if what you say is true and you can't even get cheap basic coverage your country is truly fucked.
>>
>>21212419
Believe me we know.

Thanks lads.
We have CTP in aus but its bundled in the rego and works out around 800 dollarydoos annual.
Sucks you have to pay for other peoples misfortune but it is what is i guess
>>
>>21212457
If our government wasn't jewed it would be appear on the rego bill as:
>road accident injury surcharge
And it would go straight into medicare rather than straight into the pockets of the multi-billion dollar insurance corporations.
>>
>>21212022
A nice Vauxhall insignia should be cheapish.
>>
>>21212478
Yeah thats how it should work.
Obviously the company they chose gets a slice and the politician that got that company on the scheme gets a kickback, but most of it goes to medicare here
>>
OP here, in most cases the 3rd party only is usually more expensive for some reason, it's a cunt that I have to pay for insurance ill probably never need. I would rather pay to repair the cars in an accident out of my own pocket desu.

>caring about RWD when you can't even afford to insure a 1.1L shitbox

You don't get a choice and chances are if you try to "make use" of the RWD aspect of whatever you end up buying you'll bin it anyway.

LDV van, there you go. RWD and cheap to insure.
>>
>>21212022
In America it's all about age and being low volume so if your insurance companies work like ours get something old and not super common. Like when I was shopping, a 96 600sl costs less to insure than an 05 Subaru legacy.
>>
Opel omega?
>>
>>21213223
Our insurance is based mainly on engine power and age. When u tell them it’s a 8l v8 they shit themselves and refuse to insure you, despite it only making 200hp. I was looking at insurance for a ford ranger 2l for use on my dads farm, and was getting quotes in excess of 7,000 pounds. I’m 18 BTW

Wait until you've got a years no claims bonus, and get an mx5

If I get an NCB, ill probably just wait until i can afford a na manual supra and add a turbo or na tune.

Want a unique RWD? Toyota MR2 Facelift / MR-S. Expensive to maintain engine stuff but is thrilling, get a hard top one.

Smart For Two
mid engine, RWD, inline 3 cylinder
Literally nobody drives them, let alone hoons/crashes them. Going by these presumptions, insurance would be super cheap

UK insurance sucks cock if you're male and <25 but it's lovely after that.

t. £1800 first year, £800 second year, £550 third year

>>21212022
MR2 or Miata are your best bets, but I'd wait a year and drive a cuckbox until then.

>>21216550
>>21216677
I didn't know these were rear wheel drive, brilliant. I'm pretty sure the gearbox absolutely ruins it though, it's a weird semi-auto box.
>>
>>21216687
Ignore the the smart for two and look at the roadster. The seating position is significantly lower than an MX5, combined with the <800kg mass makes driving one like riding a go kart public roads. 700cc engine is cheap to insure and mileage is 50+ mpg.

Britfag reporting in
>First car and first year insurance
>RWD
>Want to do sick skids
It's new drivers like you which is the reason why insurance for RWDs are so damn expensive. I'm not hating on you, I want to hoon in a RWD car, but there are idiots in our age group who crash a lot and ruin it for the rest of us because insurance companies then assume us to be a risk and raise the premium for everyone.

RWD is impossible to cheaply insure unless you either pay through the nose for insurance (expect at least £3,000 for first year), and/or you choose telematics which is pointless if you want to hoon. Be patient like the rest of us, develop 5 years of NCB with a FWD car and wait until you're 25, then it's next to nothing to insure RWD cars.

t. on my 3rd year of insurance, 20 years old with 2 years NCB and no previous incidents with other cars or insurance, a 2.0L E46 or E9x costs £2,000+ to insure.
>>
>>21216952
Would a bmw 1 series be cheaper? I’ve seen a few young ones driving them
>>
OP here, ty for suggestions.
>>21216978 a £600 1 series is £2000 to insure, the 1.6 version, a 2000 1.0L Yaris for £500 is £1500 to insure. This is the state that is the UK.
>>
3 series bmws are decently cheap to insure, I’m paying $50 a month with 2 points on my license.
>>
>>21216952
Check out something more powerful, its cheaper to insure cars that young people don't drive (and therefore crash). I'm the exact same age, insurance etc as you and the m135i is £700 less to insure than the m120d.

>>21217610
OP, just get a corsa like everyone else. I only know one person IRL who insisted on RWD as his first car. He was an insufferable faggot about it until he wrote it off trying to drift around a roundabout.
